Maid of the Mist Boat Tours

The Maid of the Mist is a boat tour in the US side of the Niagara Falls, New York.

The boats depart from Niagara Reservation State Park at Prospect Point near the Rainbow Bridge, and takes its passengers past the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then into the dense mist of spray inside the curve of the Horseshoe Falls (Canadadian Fallls). The tour is 20 minutes long. A trip to Niagara falls is not complete, without a ride on the Maid of the Mist.
